Bloomington, IN—Here is how the IU football alumni performed in week two:
Cody Latimer – New York Giants
Wide receiver Cody Latimer entered week two questionable with a calf strain. Latimer gutted it out and played through the pain. He caught three passes for 30 yards before unfortunately suffering a concussion. Latimer will enter concussion protocol and his status will likely be week-to-week.
Tevin Coleman – San Francisco 49ers
Tevin Coleman sprained his ankle on his first play from scrimmage last week in the 49ers win against the Buccaneers. San Francisco will be without Coleman, whose recovery timetable will likely keep him out another four weeks. Coleman has six carries for 23 yards and two receptions for 33 yards on the season. The 49ers defeated the Bengals this week and are 2-0 on the season.
Jordan Howard – Philadelphia Eagles
In his second game with the Philadelphia Eagles, Jordan Howard had eight carries for 18 yards, good for 2.3 yards-per-carry. The Eagles lost to the Falcons 24-20 and couldn’t do much of anything against Atlanta’s defensive front. Howard added one reception for eight yards. As the season progresses, Howard will work to find a bigger role within Philadelphia’s offense.
Ian Thomas – Carolina Panthers
Ian Thomas was not targeted in Carolina’s uninspiring loss at home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Despite Cam Newton’s 51 passing attempts, the quarterback struggled mightily, and Thomas was unable to record a statistic. The Panthers hope to regroup against Arizona next week and Thomas will continue to find a role within Carolina’s offense.
Nate Sudfeld – Philadelphia Eagles
IU legend Nate Sudfeld suffered a fracture in his non-throwing wrist and had surgery before the season started. It is estimated Sudfeld will make a full recovery and return to action in about five weeks. Sudfeld will continue to serve as Carson Wentz’s backup on the Philadelphia Eagles when he returns.
Chris Covington – Dallas Cowboys
Chris Covington was inactive for the Cowboys this week in their win over Washington.
Dan Feeney – Los Angeles Chargers
Dan Feeney and the Chargers lost a heartbreaker in Detroit in a game where they missed two field goals and turned it over twice, including a late interception as LA was in scoring range.
Brandon Knight – Dallas Cowboys
Brandon Knight was inactive for Dallas’ victory in Washington over the Redskins.
Wes Martin – Washington Redskins
Wes Martin, rookie offensive guard, was inactive for Washington in Sunday’s loss to the Cowboys.
Rodger Saffold – Tennessee Titans
Rodger Saffold and the Titans suffered their first loss of the season against the Indianapolis Colts at home. Tennessee failed to mount a comeback, losing 19-17 and now stand 1-1 on the year.
